Hi all!
Like most of you folks, I have a huge back-catalog in a spreadsheet somewhere of assets I plan on making some day.
Well, here's my list.. This is just the stuff I want to make, It's alright if there is already a good asset on the workshop for it, it's just for my own pleasure.

This isn't going to replace the refinery project, I'll still keep updating that thread. I just wanted to have a place to keep my other assets organized and seek advice from everyone.

I'll have to clean up the list at some point, but for now it's just a data dump. I have some more things I would like to make, but I don't have a design picked out yet, so I left them off for now.

Some great ideas on there (I didn't dare click all the links in case I got more ideas :P) and a very nice looking college! I always find myself using the same few schools, so more well done variation is very welcome! :D If the wing is a subbuilding it will have collision like normal and force people to place it on a corner, so that should limit some of the steam comments. :P Ofc if you end up adding the plaza (that totally is nice looking so I get you're tempted to make it) and add it as a subbuilding, then the corner won't really be an issue.

Looking forward to seeing your progress :D

Man that looks awesome! Any chance you could publish it as university and as high school: purely by the looks of it seems suitable for both purposes (and proper uni coverage is easier to achieve than high school coverage).

    I'm not sure about making all the buildings on that campus, but the longer building on the right would make for an amazing looking, realistic highschool.

  • LOL @Judazzz you're funny. Thanks for all the advice everyone!

    I got the whole thing wrapped up ahead of schedule, so I decided to throw in Rush Hour integration. I created a Graduation random event; however, it never fired in about 2 hours worth of testing :-/ I noticed that every mention of the automatic random events specify a unique building, so I wonder if there's a limitation there since it's a university building.
    So, I made the event manual as well as automatic, and you can start it manually in the event that it never starts automatically. Lots of funny eastereggs in it from my days at a technical college.

    Teaser is such a tease

    It's ready for release, but I'm gonna keep it til next Thursday in the event that I happen to find out if the random events work or not. For now, it's open to friends if you would like to drop me a line to test it out.

    I'm gonna use this time between releases to catch back up with the Oil Refinery project.

    That parking garage looks smashing, btw! And props for your detective work and perseverance!

    Thank you very much, I really enjoyed digging around in mod tools - I should really learn Unity... but I do a lot of scripting at work, and I suppose I'd rather not come home to Visual Studio as well lol.

     

    I thought the same, and kept a distance for a long time, but eventually I decided to jump in anyway (encouraged by AJ3D, so my mod's existence owes a lot to him), and I've been hooked ever since. I'm a developer working with Visual Studio as well (although my primary focus is on the frond-end side of things), so in order to keep a balance I've made a conscious decision to mod strictly on my own terms, which means that I only work on my stuff when I want to. Of course I try to offer support if asked, but I don't set any targets or deadlines - it's a hobby. Sometimes I don't touch my mods for weeks or even months on end, so it's all pretty relaxed....
    Added benefit is that modding introduced me with a whole new type of development and has increased my knowledge, skills and way of organizing and running projects quite substantially (and thus my net value :D ), so even though it's a hobby, it makes me a better developer. so besides tons of fun it's a good investment.

    Love the parking garage btw, time to find it a nice home in my city!

    Thank you all! I know, we have a severe lack of parking garages in the game given how prominent they are in a real city.
    With builtin sub-building support, and mod support that makes parking spots more desirable, it really adds realism to have to worry about parking.

    Thank you very much, I really enjoyed digging around in mod tools - I should really learn Unity... but I do a lot of scripting at work, and I suppose I'd rather not come home to Visual Studio as well lol.

    I'm gonna be heading back to some Oil Refinery assets now, the refinery project is far from over, we got tons of work left to do!

    Looks great for airports,businesses areas,and office parks maybe.

    Precisely ^_^ Thank you all for the nice comments and motivation.

    @Judazzz That's certainly something to think about. I'm on the systems architecture side of things, but I value our code monkey brethren :lol:
    I extended you a friend request in Steam, if I do decide to start exploring the modding side of things I would value your advice, if you don't mind :thumb:

    @Badi_Dea Sure thing man - click slaves unite!!! ;) 

    My first advice, if you want to get your toes wet: download the source of a couple of mods from Github and study how are structured and how they work, tinker with the code and see how that affects the mod's behavior in-game (my first few attempts were mostly burping up errors by the truck load, lol). It helps to have an idea for a new mod though, or at least a scope for it (does it affect behavior, assets, visuals, ...) - the libraries are vast and the possibilities virtually limitless (especially when you resort to detouring stuff outside the official API), so it is easy to get lost.

    Impressive! With a proper UI and a way to modify the stats of a building depending on the deployed modules, this could really go off!

    Upgrading service buildings like schools and fire stations is the first thing that comes to mind, but it would also be interesting for airports (more runways, terminals) and train stations (more platforms).

    Depending on the options to trigger this it could be also used to upgrade parts of a building.

    If triggered by actual gametime this could trigger a change in a commercial subbuilding for holiday seasons. Thinking at the modular rico buildings from jerenable it could change the bottom commercial building with one with christmas decoration while leaving the building above as it is.

    If such a trigger would be possible it would also allow a massive change within gameplay after building a city. I'm thinking f.e. about a road section that changes for a while into a road with roadworks.

    But even this is not possible its - as boformer mentioned - also a massive step foreward building modular buildings.

        In episode #1, we kickstart the city by building up a small island and than looking to spread out our city in the next episode. We so far have began to build our skyline, and commercial districts and the iconic japan neon light street. Project Japan is a humble attempt to build a somewhat realistic looking Japanese city situated somewhere between Okayama and Kobe on the northern shore of the Harima-nada sea. Japanese city series are almost non-existent, perhaps because of the serious ack of Japanese themed assets on the workshop. Finding inspiration can be tricky. Therefore, revamps are to be expected throughout the series, as i get better at building Japanese cityscapes and/or new assets become available.

        Hello everyone,
        Long time since I've been very active.  Jumped back into making game content, this time for Cities Skylines.  Been working on a new modular airport for way too long and finally starting to put the finishing touches on it.  This is my 1st unveiling and I'll probably be working on it for another month before releasing.
         
        When I started out to make this monstrosity, I had small goals to just make some simple modular airport pieces.  I was always unhappy with how the nightlights in a modular building looked, always coming on at different times.  When the nightlights were on all the time, I didn't like the look of it either.  So I learned how to make Clear glass props.  Nice.  So then I had to model the insides of the buildings, then figure out the pathing, the roads I use to simplify laying things out broke the paths.  So I learned how to make new roads and offset the pedestrian paths.  Then I thought that I wanted to be able to have a working skytrain system going to different parts of the airport.  So I had to learn how to make a proper elevated train station and a new rail line that could be bent at 90 degree angles to fit in the buildings.  On and on it went until now I feel confident enough to unveil this to the community, warts and all.
        There are about 30 buildings in the set, a boatload of glass props, 4 roads and about 30 props (not glass).  This will not be for the faint of heart.  I made this airport shone in about 3 hours.  This is not a "plop and go" building.  Remember that some airports are like little cities themselves.  So all these resources for an airport aren't all that bad...right?
         
        Almost forgot to mention the parking garage with the skywalks and integrated metro station will be released with this too.  As a side note, I spent a lot of time making a station for the skytrain in the garage and making it go into the terminal building.  Not happening at this stage.  For now I have given up on that folly.
         
        The modular 8 level parking garages will have 11 buildings and I made 2 new parking lot light props for them.
         
        Don't be shy and tell me what you think.  Just be gentle please.

        Hello,
        The 2018 Asian Games is a big sport event. Beside from traditional sports, eSports are available. The games including Arena of Valor, the latest version of PES, League of Legends etc. But, why there's no city sim (C:S and SC4) have been picked on any eSport events? It's cool to compete with other real-life nations, for instance, to create a beautiful yet functional imaginary cities or replicate real-world cities. I know that this question somewhat childish, but I'm still curious answering that.
        Thanks.

        Hello,
        Yesterday, I've tried an internet cafe near me. Every PC has Steam client and the USB can be plugged. In my knowledge, Steam games can be made offline and their offline data is available. I'll leave that later. Which game should I buy up to around $20, Cities: Skylines or SimCity 4? I've missed the promo few days ago. Are there any another giveaways/promos on them? Also, if I made the game offline, can I copy the files to my USB drive? So, I don't have to download the game again, only the validation. No, I'm not supporting any kind of gray/black distribution of the game. It's only for personal use and for 1 PC (though is moving).
        Thanks.
